Hi Ralf, sorry for not responding earlier.

At the moment most SIG coordinators do not have direct access to their
web pages, but webmaster@python.org can help you.  The thing to do is
to visit the .ht version of any file you want to change (just edit the
url to remove the trailing `ml').  Make your changes and send them to
webmaster@python.org.  If this gets to be a common enough occurance,
we can probably arrange for you to have cvs write access to that

Can you drop them in an ftp directory somewhere?  Or are they
available on the web via a wget command?  If so, I can suck them over
to the mail server, cat them to the current archives and regenerate
the archvies.
